Performance and scalability: frequency of garbage collector?

  1. frequency of garbage collector? (1 messages)

    what should be frequency of ideal garbage collection in a mid-size web application... is GC running(major GC) 7-8 times in day is OK?
  2. It's OK if you say it is[ Go to top ]

    Ideal would be zero major GCs, but reality usually falls short of the ideal. The question is really about how long the pauses are and what impact it has on the users of your web site. If your customers don't care or don't notice the GC pauses, then it doesn't really matter how many of them there are. Charlie http://www.performanceengineer.com/
